Bangladesh Bank (BB) has asked banks to cut use of electricity and fuel till next June. 

Banks have to reduce the consumption of gas and lubricant by 20 percent and electricity by 25 percent in the next one year starting from July this year, said a BB circular issued Tuesday.

The money saved from this austerity move won't be used in any other sector, the notification added.

Also, banks have to preserve the documents and information regarding reduced usage in their respective head offices. 

Once, the team from the Bangladesh Bank goes for inspection, banks have to show the data.
